More than $70,000 in grant funding has been awarded to eleven community groups, not-for-profit organisations and schools around the Kimberley thanks to the Water Corporation’s Kimberley Community Grants Scheme.

The Apex Club of Kununurra, the Fitzroy Valley Rodeo Club and the Kununurra Toy and Puzzle Library are just some of the organisations in the Kimberley benefiting from this year’s round of funding.

Water Minister Dave Kelly said the funding will support a range of youth-focused facilities, events and programs.

“The Scheme will also provide support to local events that bring tourism to the Kimberley region, and improved amenities for local schools, community groups and a wildlife rescue,” he said.

Kimberley MLA Divina D’Anna said it was fantastic to see so many community initiatives events supported by the grants scheme.

“I am excited that so many community groups, not-for-profit organisations and other worthy recipients are sharing in these grants which contribute greatly to our region at the grassroots level,” she said.

“I look forward to visiting some of these projects and events to see firsthand how the grants are benefiting the Kimberley region.”

Since its inception the Kimberley Community Grants Scheme has awarded more than $517,000 in grants to Kimberley organisations.
